Congratulations @JulieMalooley, they are just adorable.
@Tahli sorry to hear about your grandfather.
I don't have any other advice about toilet training, but really try to persist with taking him out every 2 hours and stand there saying toilet. When he goes say toilet excitedly and give him a treat. It takes a while but they get there.
@faithandhopellove, sending lots of good luck your way today. Big hugs to you hon
@Tahli, I'm very sorry to hear of your Grandfather passing. No matter how close you were, it's still a broken link in the chain. Big hugs lovely
@JulieMalooley, that photo is absolutely gorgeous. Such a picture of peace and serenity.
@Maxwellsmum, @Summer, @Infinity, @Tahli - big hugs to you lovely ladies today
Hello to everyone else!
So, a quick question for you all. Obviously this is something I will have to address with my FS, but as I can't do that ATM I wanted to ask you all about the MTHKR thingy. I have NO IDEA if I've ever been tested for it. I'm thinking probably not. And I've been taking a massive dose of folate for a year now.
1. Is this something my GP can order a test for?
2. Is the folate likely to have any negative effect on me?
3. What about NK cells? Can a GP order that test? Or does it have to be a FS?
Thanks for any advice
@Blossom74 I had a blood test for MTHFR gene and had to pay for it as it isn't covered by Medicare. So I'd imagine you'd know if you'd had it? I think the BT was about $40 from memory. I have a half gene issue (or something) and Wazza increased my folate from 5 to 10mg/day - his standard for all patients is 5mg I believe. In terms of safety I trust Wazza and am concerned about neural tube defects (as I've worked with kids with spina bifida), so I haven't questioned it. I'm don't have any side effects from it and currently crave rocket and spinach, so my body wants even more folate. I imagine your GP could request the BT.
With NK cells that was tested via biopsy, so mine was checked when I had my first flush and scratch prior to ET. So I'd imagine that will have to be with your FS. Again there is a pathology charge for the biopsy. I cannot remember how much it was. The joy of IVF, money just runs away!
